For the past few... golly I want to say it's probably been a few weeks - I have not had a single worry or fear about my headaches. In fact for the most part I wasn't having any! So I was in really high spirits, as I felt like slowly but surely I was really getting better from my HA.
But than of course, life has a way of reminding me that it isn't that easy.
Today I was with my family and we had just gotten out of the car and were headed into a few stores to go shopping (our family is rarely able to go places together because of everybody's busy schedule so it was nice family time), when suddenly BAHM! I get this sharp, strong, headache on the side of my head (think of a ice-pick headache, but a little milder) - it only last a few seconds but it was enough to ruin the entire evening out with my family. On the outside I was trying not to show my fear - even after the headache had long gone I felt like anything and everything was going to trigger it to come back again. The bright lights, the people talking, I felt like I needed to just go home and curl into a ball in my bed. Even now I'm still a little scared despite the fact that it's been almost 3 hours since the headache and it has not come back.
I'm so upset with myself and I feel it's just not fair to my family that I'm almost sabotaging our good times with my HA.
